comment Groutable vinyl tile in a laundry room. Is it a bad idea?
Oops, sorry missed that you said sheet vinyl. You're right, sheet vinyl is much better in every aspect except for ease of installation.

comment Groutable vinyl tile in a laundry room. Is it a bad idea?
@Ecnerwal: no, unfortunately not. We've tried those (thankfully in much less conspicuous place). The seam between tiles is in the middle of the fake "grout line", and even though we glued the tiles together real tight, over time some dirt gets into these seams, and they become visible black lines. It all screams "fake"... Wouldn't do that again.

comment Can I glue a second layer of drywall?
@Mel: Sorry, edited my question. I meant exterior-facing wall, where I need to deal with vapour barrier, not disturbing insulation, etc. Adding a second layer of drywall is exactly how I wanted to add a solid base for tiles. Not all of current wall is bad, there is enough ok drywall to glue to.
